Chalet Petit Planica
Chalet Petit Planica is well situated in an exclusive new development alongside the piste, allowing the convenience of ski-in/ski-out. The nearest lift is only 50 meters away, from the top of which a brand new, high speed 6-man chairlift will whisk you to the top of the mountain. For beginner skiers the nursery area is located right next to the chalets.
Each chalet has an atmospheric open plan lounge/dining room with a log fire, looking out onto a large south-facing balcony with superb views over the Tarentaise valley and across the slopes of Les Arcs. All the bedrooms are ensuite and have balconies, and a lift serves the guest floors as well as the underground garage.
La Rosière 1850 Resort Info
La Rosière skiing
La Rosière is lift linked with the italian resort of La Thuileand has a great snow record. The two resorts, although unlikely stablemates, form a substantial ski area with plenty of long wide runs to please intermediates. La Rosière also provides a useful gateway to some exciting heli-skiing over in Italy, enabling locals and ski holiday makers in France (where heli-skiing is banned) to heli-ski in Italy to their hearts' content (bookable through the Evolution 2 ski school), before returning to France's Tarentaise Valley. The combined area has 33 lifts and 135km of pistes.
The main draw back for those wanting to ski the Italian side is that the lift link is a long pomma lift and not suitable for beginners, young children or snowboarders not proficient in riding long pommas.
La Rosière ski resort
La Rosière, although purpose built, is a gem of quintisential alpine charm. There isn't a great deal to do off snow, although visitors are happy enough whiling away the evenings in the relaxed bars and restaurants (the Petit Danoise is popular and offers sky tv sports coverage plus internet access) The locals are friendly and the prices are cheaper than most other tarentaise resorts.
